After activists of Sri Rajput Karni Sena (SRKS) held protest demonstrations for demanding the withdrawal of the TV serial 'Jodhaa Akbar', producer Ekta Kapoor today said that the show would be amended by changing its name and character.
Ekta, who is the producer of the Zee TV show, flew to Jaipur to hold talks with SRKS' convener Lokendra Singh Kalvi.
"We are committed to the fact that no caste, community or religions will be shown in bad light by us. We can not stop the serial 'Jodhaa Akbar' as Zee is also a party to it, and there are certain contractual obligations among ourselves and third parties.
"As a producer of the serial we will consider to change the name of show and character's name. We have discussed the issue with SRKS now, if their (SRKS) demand is not met...I openly say at public forum that there would be no Balaji's involvement in the said TV show (Jodhaa Akbar). I will abide my decision in future too. If I have hurt any religion or community whether Rajput or any other caste... I am apologizing for it, " Kapoor said.
SRKS had claimed that the period drama had "distorted" the history of the Rajputs.
"The character Jodhaa, as depicted in the serial, had never existed in Rajput history of Rajasthan nor with Akbar," Kalvi had said.
Even the group had barred the release of Ekta's upcoming film "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobara" in the state but now they have given a green signal to it.
"After a meeting with the Karni Sena chief Kalvi, it is decided that our new film 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobara' will be shown in Rajasthan's theaters forthwith," Ekta said. P
